For one day only, you can make an even bigger difference in our community. On November 17th, all gifts made online to Carberry & Area Community Foundation will be stretched by a contribution from The Winnipeg Foundation and The Government of Manitoba.
Only gifts made between 12:01am and 11:59pm at www.endowmanitoba.ca
to CACF’s Community General Fund will be eligible. For every $5 you give, The Winnipeg Foundation will add $1, and The Government of Manitoba will add an additional $1! Your $5 gift becomes $7!
Stretching your gift means even more benefit for your hometown. Carberry and Area Community Foundation plays a vital, lasting role by supporting charitable projects that improve life for all of us.
Our community foundation supports all aspects of life in Carberry and Area, making grants to a wide variety of worthy causes – from daycares to seniors’ homes, scholarships to school improvements, food banks to fitness, and much, much more.
These grants are possible thanks to generous gifts from local donors from all walks of life. Community foundations pool and endow (permanently invest) all gifts and the income earned supports a variety of projects within the foundation’s catchment area. The original contributions are never spent, ensuring a lasting legacy for donors and a permanent source of support for the community.
Canada’s community foundation movement started in 1921 with the establishment of The Winnipeg Foundation. Ninety-five years later, there are 54 community foundations in our province – more than a quarter of Canada’s total. These foundations are part of Manitoba’s history of generosity, a tradition in which we can all participate and take pride.
November 17th is a great time to invest in the future of Carberry and Area. (Of course, your local community foundation will be glad to receive your support at any time of year.) No matter the size of your gift, your contribution will improve life here for generations to come.
